Dear darling, its been so many years since we put you in the ground
the sound of the soil hitting your coffin still haunts me
I can’t seem to kick the drink just yet but I’m still trying just for you
and every time I walk the corridor I notice the room without you
I know what I’m saying is far too late
but I need that someone to listen, I needed you speak too
it seems life has taken its toll on me and I’ve taken it out on you
so I’m sorry for all my selfishness and the pain I have put you through

I lay flowers on your gravestone every time we meet
that lump in my throat tightens as i struggle to speak.

So now I’m left to face my demons, my life in black
The ghost of you still screaming out, (my life in black)

(Where have you been all of these years?)
I’ve been wasting away
I lost track of my fucking sanity
(Where have you been all of these years?)
I’ve been destroying myself
I lost the care for my own fucking well being

Although our lives seemed so distant and the drink had tore us apart
I just want you know that I’m with you, and you’ll always be in my heart
it should be you who is looking over me, you deserve to be here today
but instead I’m looking over you, It should be me in that fucking grave.

And my heart aches, because I’ve been lying to myself
I let my life in black consume me
disregarding everyone else
